GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Seven people are safe after being rescued from an ice floe on Green Bay.

A Door County sheriff's dispatcher tells WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/AdHT8l) the Wisconsin DNR reported several people stranded around 6:45 a.m. Sunday.

The people had been fishing on a piece of ice that broke off shore and began floating away into open water in the Little Sturgeon area.

Brussels and Sturgeon Bay Fire Departments used boats to rescue the stranded people from the ice.

No one was hurt.
